(b Brockmoor, Staffs, 18 Sept 1863; d 10 Dec 1963). American glass designer and technician of English birth. He trained as an assistant in his father's salt-glazed stoneware factory in Stourbridge, Staffs, and in 1880 joined the Stourbridge firm of Stevens & Williams. During this period Carder developed his Mat-su-no-ke glass (which uses the application of clear or frosted glass in high relief outside the vessel). He also collaborated with John Northwood to make coloured art glass and cut and cased glass.
